I don't think there is a way to differentiate between 3G data and EDGE or GPRS data but try this:
Go to Settings > Connectivity > Destinations > Internet
Select your provider's connection setting, then Option > Edit
Scroll down to the last item "Use access point" and toggle to "After confirmation" rather an "Automatically."
That way, every time your phone tries to connect, it will ask you first and you can say "No" or "Yes" if you feel it is worth the expense.
You might want to do the same for the "WAP" and "Multimedia" destinations as well.
Some applications have a setting that prevents access when roaming but unfortunately, not all apps, so the above way is one method to "catch all" connections.
Then when you come home, you can just go back and change it back to "Automatically" and you're back to seamless use.
Why there can not be same kind a switch like in iPhone. Just click one switch to off and iOS does the rest.
